The Devil’s Double trailer is here…

Posted on 26 April 2011 by TH3 No08

The poster for this movie hit last week and it was incredible. One of the coolest posters I’ve seen in a long time and it certainly piqued my interest in this movie. I don’t know how much of this movie is true but it definitely looks like some crazy shit went on in the desert.
THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE opens in theaters July 29, 2011.

The Poster Wall #3

Posted on 01 April 2011 by TH3 No08

This week’s Poster wall is a mixed bag as far as quality goes. Some cool stuff, some average stuff. Let’s get going…

First up this week is a series of posters from the movie Thor that hits theaters in a few weeks. Much like last weeks POTC series, this series features the many characters in the upcoming movie in basic headshots. Nothing spectacular here, just your basic movie posters but the series as a whole is nice…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Up next is a group of posters from a few bigger budget movies hitting this summer. Most of these are average as well. I dig the Winnie the Pooh poster as well as the Hangover 2 poster. Both pretty indicative of what’s you get from those movies. The POTC posters are two more from the collection we featured last week. The russian version is of particular interest. I’m digging the post naval war vibe going on in that one…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a nice set of posters from a few smaller films that you might have to search a bit to find. The Hesher one is excellent. I love the black and white asthetics and the cigarette smoke. Throw in the old school red Metallica font used for the title and you really get a feel for the vibe they’re going here. My guess is that a good portion of the movie may take part in a laundry mat or a trailer park. Either way it looks like something I want to see. Takashi Miike’s 13 Assassins looks crazy too. Man that red 13 really pops on that cloudy sky background. Good stuff…

 

 

 

 

 

These two are posters for some upcoming televison shows. They don’t really seem to be on the same level as most movie posters especially the True Blood one but I kinda like the Falling Skies one. Very District 9 and I love District 9…

 

 

 

 

 

Terrence Malicks “Tree of Life” film has been long delayed but will soon be seeing the light of day when it premiere at Caanes next month. If these posters are any indication this is gonna be one crazy movie…

 

 

 

 

 

And finally a few “fan made” posters from some of my favorite movies. The Jaws posters are two very different designs that capture the dynamic impact that Jaws as a move has made on our culture. When you’ve been made into Legos you’ve left your mark. The Kill Bill poster was created by Mondo Tees for a screening of “Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair” in L.A. last week. Very cool layout, design, and use of color that I hope will one day soon be available for purchase.

 

 

 

 

 

Well that’s it for this weeks posters. Check back next week for some more cool posters and if you come across one feel free to send it over and I’ll credit you when I post it…

The Source Code is the movie to see this week…

Posted on 01 April 2011 by TH3 No08

There is a lot of discussion that goes on around here about movie adaptations of video games and how they never get it right. They always seem to be missing something whether it be important characters being re-imagined or plot points changed to make it more hollywood’ish or for the most part they just don’t get what video games are about. They are about the experience and the challenge. A good video game is one you can play over and over again and not get bored. The challenge is what brings you back and that’s the best way I can describe The Source Code for you. This movie is the live action version of a mystery/action-adventure video game that keeps bringing you back over and over again, each time discovering something new that will allow you to advance to the next mystery and hopefully escape from the danger and save the girl. While The Source Code may not actually be based on a video game, it certainly has all the elements of a great video game in droves.

I’m sure you’ve probably all known what this movie is about at this point. There has been a ton of trailers and press for this movie. It seems like rarely a day has gone by in the past few months that we didn’t get a new poster, trailer, teaser, or interview for this movie teasing out bits of info to keep us interested. The Source Code is an action thriller centered on a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown man and discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. He has eight minutes to discover who is responsible for this terrible deed and report back to his commanders before the train is going to explode. What we soon learn is that Gyllenhaal must relive these 8 minutes over and over again until he is able to solve the mystery and save the day. Sounds pretty straight forward right? Well that’s where this movie wins the day.

The real drawing point to this movie is the “video game” style replays where the character of Stevens must relive these moments over and over again in a Groundhog Day style series of events using what he’s learned each time to get closer to solving the mystery. The whole time he’s reliving these events he’s falling in love with Michelle Monaghan’s character and instead of just finding out who the terrorist is and handing over the info to his superior officers he begins to plot a way to save the people on the train and get the girl as well.

The Source Code is a very good movie that just happens to be a one of the better sci-fi movies I’ve seen in a long time. I love the way that they didn’t just gloss over the scientific aspects of whats going on here to focus on the action and romance elements. The science was respected, and that allows for some good discussion on whether what was happening in this movie could actually be possible and what the repercussions of those actions are, but that’s a thought for another day. What you should really take away from this review is that The Source Code is definitely a movie worth seeing. It’s smart, funny at times, has a little romance, has a lot of good action sequences, and has a mystery behind it all that will keep you guessing as to what’s really going on up until the very end. Check this movie out and support good movies like this, they just might make more smart sci-fi movies and that’s never a bad thing.

First clip from Disney’s Winnie The Pooh…

Posted on 31 March 2011 by TH3 No08

I grew up on Winnie The Pooh. I read the books as a child and enjoyed the movies and cartoons over the years. Watching this clip really brings back a lot of memories as well as a newfound respect for the old school animation they used back then. It’s crazy to think about all the work that went into that the way they used to do things and how its been automated in today’s digital work flow. Any way, the clip looks good. I look forward to taking my kids to check this out when it hits theaters April 14 2011.

Synopsis…

Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh,” the first big-screen Pooh adventure from Disney animation in more than 35 years. With the charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very little brain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo

Conan Teaser Trailer Arrives…

Posted on 15 March 2011 by TH3 No08

Of all the remakes, reboots, and comic imaginations coming out this summer, this is probably the least interesting to me. I grew up knowing of Conan the comic but never really watched the movie version starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. It just wasn’t my cup of tea. After watching this teaser I’m not sure I’m gonna be going out of my way anytime soon to check this version out either. Enjoy your spooky dark Conan trailer…

Wednesday Artist Of The Day: Tim Doyle

Posted on 09 March 2011 by TH3 No08

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to take a look at some of the talented comic writers and artists we spent time with at Staple-Austin over the past weekend. We had a great time meeting and interviewing these guys and girls and want to give you a chance to check out some of their work. Tim Doyle is a artist who is well know for his poster designs and graphic art work as well as his work on The Intergalactic Nemesis. You can find more of his work at mrdoyle.com as well as anywhere you’ve seen a movie poster and gone “Wow, I’ve never seen a movie poster this awesome, did the studio make this?” More than likely they didn’t and it was Tim Doyle’s work you were drooling over.

Visual FX reel from HEREAFTER

Posted on 23 February 2011 by TH3 No08

I’m a big fan of behind the scenes featurettes especially FX breakdowns so I was super stoked to share this. I haven’t seen HEREAFTER yet but seeing the FX work on this reel makes me want to check it out…

A drama centered on three people — a blue-collar American, a French journalist and a London school boy — who are touched by death in different ways.

Sweet Tooth # 18

Posted on 14 February 2011 by TH3 No08

Comic Break Review: Sweet Tooth # 18

Sponsored by: www.comicbreak.com

Written by JEFF LEMIRE

Art and Cover by JEFF LEMIRE

After the explosive conclusion of “Animal Armies,” Jepperd and his new traveling companions begin a long trek north in search of answers in this stand-alone issue. But as the first snowfall of the year hits, mistrust and fear threaten to tear the group apart before they even get started!

There is often a strange disconnect when picking up a comic for the first time, especially when you’re jumping in 18 issues deep. With no real sense of where the story is headed or where it’s been I often find myself grasping at the smallest detail hoping it will lead me to a connection with a character that will draw me into the story and begin that relationship I was looking for in comics to begin with. With some books it’s a struggle to find my footing and if I reach the staples with out finding that connection, I’m pretty sure it’s a lost cause and time to move on but occasionally I come across that rare comic that grabs you with nothing but the cover itself and won’t let go. It’s just a little peek into what’s in store but it grabs me none the less and I can’t help but delve into it and that was the case with Sweet Tooth #18.

Sweet Tooth #18 picks up with Gus (The Boy) and Tommy Jeppard (The Big Man) leading a group of survivors along a desolate road in search of the mythical place called Alaska in the hopes for a better life in post apocalyptic America. There was a terrible plague at some point in the past leaving the world a cold and dangerous place and these characters are looking for a sliver of hope in this dark world. As the travel the road searching for this land of new hope, there is a lot of tension between the characters of the group. Past acts of betrayal have left many in the group

Ever wonder what job you would hold in the Star Wars Universe?

Posted on 02 February 2011 by TH3 No08

If you’ve ever wondered what job you would hold were you living in the Star Wars Universe (and haven’t we all at one time or another) then check out this handy chart I found over at onlineschools.org. Very cool. Incidentally, and much like the real world, there are no podcasting jobs in the StarWars universe. Maybe I’ll try the Potter Universe…

The Stand coming to the big screen?

Posted on 01 February 2011 by TH3 No08

It looks like Stephen Kings (IMO) best work is finally gonna get the Hollywood treatment it’s fans have always clamored for. Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the book will make its way to the big screen via a Warner Bros. and CBS Films co-production. What’s yet to be seen is the size and scope of the story to be told. Stephen King’s “The Stand” is a monster of a book that could probably be turned into a 24 episode tv series. There are a ton of characters that come and go as well as major story arcs that just couldn’t be told in even a trilogy of

Banksy or Mr. Brainwash?

Posted on 01 February 2011 by TH3 No08

If you’ve listened to the podcast over the months you’d surely know my deep affection for the Banksy directed film “exit through the giftshop”. The documentary keeps you guessing who’s who and what are the intentions of the mysterious street artist and his new protege. Now that he’s been nominated for best documentary MBW has stepped up his game and dropped a whole new layout to promote his nomination. (photos from laist.com)

MBW Signature

Is this MBW prepping for the the Academy Awards? If Gift Shop wins, who will go onstage to accept? And…is MBW really Banksy?

This is the statement Bansky made after he found out he was nominated,

This is a big surprise. I don

Kevin Smith turns Sundance on it’s head…

Posted on 24 January 2011 by TH3 No08

There was a lot of hype and hyperbole leading up to Kevin Smith’s premiere of Red State at Sundance and all that quickly became an afterthought when Smith told Hollywood to go fuck itself and bought his own distribution right for 20$. Smith had announced earlier in the year that he would auction of the rights to his movie directly after the premiere and drew a ton of interest for what was sure to be a public spectacle and did not disappoint.

When can you see Red State? Well if you’re willing to shell out anywhere from

Rumor: Bond 23 Title Revealed?

Posted on 21 January 2011 by Christian

The Sun claims to have learned of the title for the upcoming Bond film and the rumor has also revealed a possible setting.

The ever unreliable UK tabloid, The Sun, has posted amongst casting rumors of Rachel Weisz, that the title of the 23rd Bond film will be Red Sky At Night.

Bleeding Cool, while trying to confirm the rumor, uncovered a forum post on Bond fan site ajb007 that corroborates The Sun’s claim:

Hi, new here guys, nice to find such a cool site. Im close friends with an art director in the film industry, i wont mention his name but he has worked closely with production designer Michael Carlin and is about to start work in Canada on Kal-El, the next Superman movie. He was busy in 2010 on Bond 23 before it went into hiatus. He told me that the movie for a while had the code name Red Shadow, but when official documentation and the script arrived it contained the title Red Sky At Night and as such was reffered to as this by Sam Mendes, Michael Carlin and the producers and the studio etc. I think its a pretty cool title myself though out of the two Red Shadow is better i think though Red Sky At Night has a classic Bond Movie ring to it. he also said that filming would have been done in Ontario, Canada and there was a large stunt involving the Ontario Tower as well as a huge hockey game and skiing/winter sports sequences. What do you guys think?

Personally, I’m not too convinced, although Canada would be a new setting for the franchise. I’d take this with a huge grain of salt and all that.

Also, “Kal-El, the next Superman movie” thing, perhaps the production name for the Synder film?

Marvel Studios Once Again Developing The Black Panther

Posted on 21 January 2011 by Christian

Marvel taps Mark Bailey to pen The Black Panther adaptation.

THR is reporting that Marvel Studios has hired Mark Bailey to pen an adaptation of The Black Panther that will be produced by Kevin Feige. The Black Panther (aka) T’Challa King of Wakanda, is a long time member of The Avengers who will themselves, be hitting the big screen next summer. The Black Panther first appeared in 1966 in the pages of The Fantastic Four.



Bailey, who’s credits include The Last of the Tribe: The Epic Quest to Save a Lone Man in the Amazon may seem like an odd choice for The Black Panther to some. Marvel expects Bailey to bring realism and grittiness to the project.

The Black Panther was reacquired by Marvel in 2005 when it absorbed many character licenses from Lionsgate. In 2003 Lionsgate bought Artisan who had previously acquired the rights from Columbia who had planned on making a Black Panther film during the 90′s with Wesley Snipes attached.
